The energy expenditure and gait characteristics of eleven subjects who had a unilateral arthrodesis of the hip and ten subjects who had a unilateral arthrodesis of the ankle were measured during a twenty-minute walking trial. Oxygen consumption was determined and heart rate, respiratory rate, and step frequency were monitored. The average walking speed for(More)
The acute retinal necrosis (ARN) syndrome has been recently linked to intraocular infection with one or more members of the herpesvirus family. The authors report two cases of ARN following herpes zoster skin eruptions, and one case following ipsilateral facial nerve palsy (Ramsay Hunt syndrome). Evaluation of serial serum antibody titers against(More)
[4-18F]Fluconazole was used to measure the pharmacokinetics of fluconazole in normal and infected animals. The biodistribution of fluconazole was determined after administration of the 18F-tracer with/without a pharmacological dose of unlabeled drug by radioactivity measurements on excised tissues. In normal rabbits and rabbits with candidal infection of(More)
The acute retinal necrosis (ARN) syndrome is a morphologically defined necrotizing retinitis, occurring in apparently otherwise healthy patients. It has been shown that the varicella zoster virus is at least one cause of the ARN syndrome; treatment with acyclovir has proven to be effective for the infectious component of ARN. We report three(More)
Epidemiologic studies have demonstrated a strong association between human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and syphilitic infection. Recent reports have suggested that concurrent HIV and luetic infection may lead to an accelerated and more fulminant course of syphilis. Specifically, neurosyphilis is encountered much earlier in such patients. We report two(More)
A patient who presented with severely decreased bilateral vision was found to have syphilis and neurosyphilis that responded well to a 14-day course of penicillin and prednisone. The patient tested positive for HIV, which can alter the natural course of syphilis, often making the diagnosis and treatment difficult. Conventional therapy for syphilis may not(More)
The Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) protocol BB84 has been proven secure against several important types of attacks: the collective attacks and the joint attacks. Here we analyze the security of a modified BB84 protocol, for which information is sent only in the z basis while testing is done in both the z and the x bases, against collective attacks. The(More)
PURPOSE We report a case of posterior ischemic optic neuropathy after uncomplicated cataract extraction. DESIGN Observational case report. METHODS Retrospective description of the natural course of posterior ischemic optic neuropathy in one patient seen at an academic institution. RESULTS The patient had sudden vision loss after uncomplicated cataract(More)
Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors used in the treatment of glaucoma are rarely associated with blood dyscrasias. Several case reports of aplastic anemia with use of acetazolamide, and two cases with use of methazolamide, have appeared in the literature. This report documents two cases of aplastic anemia, at least one of which was almost certainly induced by the(More)
